Value creation

Apax Partners focuses the growth strategy of its portfolio companies on three specific areas: internationalisation, build-ups and digital transformation. Implementing these strategies is made possible thanks to the trust-based relationships between entrepreneurs and the Apax Partners teams.

Mid-cap

Apax Partners targets LBO and growth capital investments in mid-size companies located primarily in French-speaking countries. We focus on businesses with enterprise values up to €500m.

France is the second largest private equity mid-market in Europe.
Midcap Transactions (50M€ - 1000M€) within APAX PARTNER's four sectors - Apax Partners

Growth focused

Apax Partners invests primarily in companies with strong fundamentals and a potential for accelerated growth through strategic and operational change.

Partnership approach

Apax Partners’ relationship with the management teams is based on a shared enterprise vision, strictly aligned financial interests, and clearly defined respective roles.

Majority or minority investor

Apax Partners typically takes majority or significant-minority stakes and has systematic representation on the Boards of its portfolio companies. We also accept minority positions if the transaction is based on a genuine partnership with the management team, which confers us certain rights.

Long-term investor

Apax Partners typically operates on a five-year investment horizon, though this depends on the specific business plans and value creation objectives.
